Mercer Clinic for the Pets of the Homeless

Food Distribution Program

The Food Distribution Program has been a part of the Mercer Clinic since its inception in 1992 and continues to grow. Due to help from pet food companies and individuals in our community, the Mercer Clinic is able to distribute over 2000 pounds of quality pet food each year!

The program distributes veterinary prescription food to qualified patients on clinic days with the help of the Loaves and Fishes staff and student volunteers.

If you would like to donate non-expired veterinary prescription food, please contact, or leave a message at (530) 752-1143.

The Mercer Clinic would like to thank all the individuals who generously provide us with donations.
